Parameters of the “IP settings” parameter card

TTL (Time-to-Live) Unicast



TTL (Time-to-Live) Unicast

0 ... 255


This parameter can be used to set the TTL value for the IP protocol. The default value is “128.” If the local network administrator specifies a different value, this value can be entered here.

The value specifies the number of intermediate stations (e.g. routers) which a data package may pass through between sender and receiver. If the value is set too low, data packages can get lost and are not received by the recipient.
